CHICAGO - General manager Stan Bowman has been promoted to vice-president/general manager in a series of moves by the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks.

The 37-year-old Bowman became the youngest general manager in NHL history to win a Stanley Cup when the Blackhawks defeated the Philadelphia Flyers in June.

Chicago's championship, its first since 1961, came in Bowman's first year as GM.

Bowman, the son of legendary NHL coach Scotty Bowman, was named the ninth general manager in franchise history on July 14, 2009, when Dale Tallon was demoted. Stan Bowman is now in his 10th season with the Blackhawks after serving in a variety of capacities, including assistant general manager.

Team president John McDonough on Tuesday also announced the promotions of Jay Blunk to executive vice-president, Kevin Cheveldayoff to assistant general manager/senior director of hockey operations and Al MacIsaac to vice-president/assistant to the president.
